For some reason I can't get the pm system to send you a note so in response to your query...
I ran an RC4 for a while and just came away feeling that I don't ride aggressive enough to make that thing move properly! 175lb rider 300lb spring fully open yada yada. It's race oriented pure and simple. The MX van r on the other hand is ultra gooey. It's so gooey in fact that after 6 months of use I'm sending it back to get it firmed up a notch. The damper is seemless in its rebound and compression circuitry and is ultra quite. The fat bottom out bumper makes for a sweet smooth ramp up too. I just got my RP back from push as the rebound quit working (race tune) and will be riding that while the MX is out for adjustments.
Hope this helps.
You'll love the RC4
It really is bomber I just prefer a more active suspension. I demoed an Ibis HD with the Vivid air and really liked it very plush and smooth with the option to really firm it up! Just got back from a 5 hour ride on the bird with the pushed RP and absolutely loved it. It is surprisingly smooth, just leave the rebound parking lot slow and the control and tracking is sweet. It makes the bike feel faster and more aggressive with no rear end skipping out in the turns and chunk. The big hit bumper inside kept me from ever feeling like it was clanky at the end of the stroke. Also mid stroke support is quite nice, much better than stock. Gaa so much good stuff on the market right now.
